Corporate Compliance & Investigations

Led by G&G senior partner and former United States Attorney Booth Goodwin, our corporate compliance and investigations practice focuses on avoiding litigation and adverse regulatory actions. With its foundation in the adage “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”, our approach helps our clients avoid costly litigation, governmental action, and perhaps even individual director and officer liability. As United States Attorney, Booth worked to address the root cause of the issues he saw. From workplace safety to chemical spills to unscrupulous business practices, Booth often saw long term business sustainability and corporate growth take a back seat to short term profit.

An effective internal investigation can identify areas of non-compliance with laws or regulations and demonstrate a company’s integrity thus limiting the collateral damage that an unfortunate incident—or even a single bad actor—can cause. A culture of compliance and risk management is essential to long term growth, especially in the current legal and regulatory climate. We want to help you avoid a catastrophe. However, if such an incident should occur, we want to help you identify its root cause, isolate it, mitigate the risks associated and make sure nothing like it happens again.

We are ready to mobilize at a moment’s notice to counsel board members and management, negotiate with adversaries or even start litigation if necessary. We bring Booth’s more than 15 years of experience as a federal prosecutor, a team of professionals, and a value-based fee structure to address the issues our clients face, help minimize risks to them and insure the long term sustainability of their businesses.
